Formula SAE Suspension Design 2005-01-3994

Resume a Formula SAE suspension design. After rules analysis, which limits the suspension a minimum travel and wheelbase, project targets were defined, than a benchmarking was made on top teams. The tire behavior is discussed. The unequal A-arms with tie-rod on front and rear suspension are detailed. The dimensional approach was developed on CAD concerning dimensional restrictions. The transient stability, control and maneuvering performance were analyzed on overall forces and moments diagram. For kinematics and dynamic analysis a multibody model was used. Rollover, ride and handling were simulated and were done tuning on geometry, springs and dampers to achieve performance.
